John Kerry: There Is Nothing ĎNormalí or ĎAmericaní About Trumpís Presidency
Breitbart ^ | 5/25/17 | Pam Key

Posted on 05/25/2017 8:33:23 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

Wednesday during a commencement speech at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, former Secretary of State John Kerry criticized the presidency of the Donald Trump as “not normal” several times, and added, “In the end, there is nothing American about it either.” Partial transcript as follows: Distinct from the hurly burly of any presidential visit, my travel to Asia, Europe, and the Middle East these past few months has informed me that the global community is watching and unsettled about the leading nation in the free world.They see us gridlocked and politically trapped in a low-intensity internal conflict of our own. They see us unilaterally disarming in the battle of values. They see us walking away from a century of thoughtful, carefully conceived economic and strategic leadership. They see volatility and unpredictability that causes confusion. They see a budget proposal that eviscerates diplomacy and reduces America’s engagement, which has traditionally defined our leadership in the world. And in this last year, our discourse, if you can dare to call it that, rose to a new level of the outrageous, coarse, and ugly. The public dialogue has become no dialogue at all. It is a shouting match that alienates citizens who disparately yearn for more from their leaders. We seem trapped in a political pinball machine where we careen from flipper to flipper, bouncing off walls of insults and contradictions, outright lies and broken promises, where up is down, and words don’t mean anything anymore. Democracy relies on free speech.

Video at link.There's nothing normal about designating a convicted child molester your daughter's godfather either, ketchup boy. Peter Yarrow, of Peter Paul and Mary fame once got a 13 yr old girl sh!tfaced and high on pot, then seduced her to, shall we say, puff on his "magic dragon". He pleaded to "taking indecent liberties with a minor" and got a suspended sentence. Years later none other than Jimmah Carter granted him a full pardon, hey even folk singers can be too big to fail. If Kerry is dumb enough to make this perv such an intimate, albeit symbolic part of his daughter's life, what does this say about his judgement, let alone his competence to make potentially life and death decisions during his tenure as Sec of State? Better yet he should just fade away and go back to his old gig

Yeah, that s old horseface, second from the right holding the bass guitar.

ohn Kerry: There Is Nothing ‘Normal’ or ‘American’ About Trump’s Presidency,

"Normal" is $20 trillion of debt.
"Normal" is the leadership of both parties selling out our country.
"Normal" is quite possibly the most corrupt presidential candidate in the country's history coming within a hair's breadth of winning.
"Normal" is the elite throwing away our nation so they can have cheaper nannies and yard care.
I don't want normal.
